    They just closed a few weeks ago.

    Was disappointed myself upon finding out.

    My contact there said they'll be transferring the branch to the Fort Bonifacio area.

    that's good news since that translates to one more store closer for us southern folks. seems like the good ones are pretty much concentrated in the north eh.

    It could be for various business reasons like the sales figures, or the traffic of people going to the Podium, or the change in management by the bldg, new policies or others. Nowadays Malls are situated at close distance and competition is tough.

    most of the retail stores in Podium are not earning enough and losing money.

    Sorry to hear it go. I visited it a few times. They had very helpful staff who like to go the extra mile to help you.

    The A Shop now has a very spacious store at the Eastwood Mall. I visited them last night.
